? whatever happened happened. i know it is easy to monday morning quarterback in the words of defense secretary panetta. don't you think the president and the administration should have been more forthcoming as to what they knew and when they knew it? >> i think we to wait for the report. i was here at the memorial for ambassador stevens. it was beautiful in a bipartisan way to see people praise the ambassador and talk to the family about the calls they are getting from young people around the country who are inspired to go into public service despite what happened to the ambassador. so i think what we have to do is await mr. pickering's report and then we will really see what the facts are and we can determine what we should have known sooner and what we can do in the future to better protect the american people at home and abroad. >> geraldo: judge jeanine had the family of one of the seals that was slain and the family member, the dad, god, we recognize and honor his loss. he called the president insincere and called hillary clinton a liar and this is ten days before the election.
to romney but in semi quasi defense of romney one mistake that obama made in the 2008 campaign is he said he was going to change the tone in washington. and every president says that. but the president does vice president the power to change the tone in washington. it takes two to consummate this tango, and obama tried. obama tried in many ways and at many different times as you know, the stimulus was more than one-third tax cuts he adopted a republican ideas for his health care reform. he went to republicans many times and said what will it take to get you to compromise with me on this bill and other bills, and he got no votes at all. so the republican's position is disrupt, be destructive, watch things fall apart, and then point their finger at him. >> jennifer: i'm curious what you think -- i have this theory that -- again, i could be all wet, but in the theme of hurricane sandy that bloomberg and chris christie who both need now significant investments to shore up their infrastructure to make sure these rolling storms which this won't be the last one since climate ch
to cut tax rates and pay for it by closing loopholes. two. he wants to increase defense spending by about $2 trillion over ten years. and three, he says he'll balance the budget at the end of his second term. let's start with the tax cuts. >> i want to bring down rates. want to bring the rates down, at the same time, lower deductions and credits so we keep getting the revenue we need. >> romney's across the board tax cut of 20% is $5 trillion worth. now, romney plans to close loophole to pay for it. we just don't know which wups, so we had to take some liberties on the map here. the joint committee on taxation did one test study and i have it right here. keep in mind, this was done based on current law, which assumes the bush tax cuts expire at the end of the year. they concluded that revenue neutral tax reform would permit a 4% decrease in all ordinary income tax rates. now, that's not close to 20%. now, let's get to the second thing. adding more than $2 trillion to defense spending. according to analysis conducted money, romney will add $2.1 trillion in defense spending over a decade. n
base and pensacola naval station, he would talk about the potential defense cuts under sequestration and obama trimming back. we are about to hit the national anthem and i probably shouldn't talk over that. and another significant thing happening today. early voting begins in florida today. get out and vote before election day. historically republicans had the edge with absentee vote and democrats had the vote with them voting early. >> john, thank you very much and continue our live team coverage with ed henry in new hampshire with the obama campaign. ed, what can you tell us. >> this is part of the president's final case to the american people. and monday is putting the pedal to the medal and he will be down in florida and starting and going late sunday and be down there on monday. starting here in new hampshire. bottom line is the adout. and his case with mitt romney. remember the old positions he said. and you go in to vote or in election day. bottom line they think mitt romney flip flopped and reminded he took conservative position and moving back to middle. romney campaign said
of the federal government is national defense. and i see some veterans with their hats on. all the veterans, raise your hand. \[applause] thank you. thank you for your service to our country and thank your families as well. and we need to have america keep our promises to our veterans and their families for the benefits they've errand. more over, we have new threats from washington t. sequestration deal which is threatening 2,000 jobs in virginia and our readiness. what has the senate done? absolutely nothing. no budgets for the last three and a half years. a lot of members of congress shouldn't get paid if they don't make appropriations. what does president obama and opponent jim mccain say? we need to raise taxes. that's the right reaction because that would mean fewer jobs. and i want to be real clear. the 200,000 men and women in virginia whose jobs are at risk who serve in our armed forces should never be used as a political bargaining chip to race taxes on small business owners. \[applause] >> the best way to raise revenues is with a thriving economy where businesses are prospering an
to their home opener tomorrow night. the hokies struggle in the sunshine state. and the redskins defense not playing the blame game with their struggles. >>> and welcome back, everybody. take a look at this. downtown center out there loudoun county all ready for the season. what do you guys think of this, huh? >> too early. too early. >> we just got done with halloween. the kids haven't even gotten rid of their costumes yet, and they're out there putting up the christmas decorations. got to say, though, it looks pretty good. and at least it feels like it's on the fall side or rather the winter side as temperatures have been struggling to get to 50 degrees in many areas today. 50 degrees out there right now. winds out of the northwest at 14 miles an hour. somebody on my facebook page a good friend of mine said 45 days left until christmas. really? come on. at least let's get through thanksgiving first. 47 in rockville, 49 in camp springs right now and out toward annapolis coming in at 52 degrees. you know it's a cool one. and when you add all the wind it feels like the 30s and low 40s acr
. romney is on offense and obama is on defense in the final week. >> eric: obama on defense, he went to new hampshire and only got four electoral votes in new hampshire. he went up there to grab four. is that desperation or protection? >> it's protection. look, this race is going to be very close. everybody recognizes that. could come down to a few votes, a few states. i want to comment on what is going on with the weather. this actually has political implications. first of all, the public is going to be focused on the storm the next three or four days. it will take the focus off the election. it will be harder for the candidates to get their messages out. also, obama has the lead in virginia, 4-point lead. he's ahead in ohio. and to the extent that this -- the weather conditions in those states take the attention away from the election tmay freeze things in place. i think obama is going to win both virginia and ohio, i think it will be very, very close. i think this election's going to go doub to the wire. i suspect you will see both candidates as they readjust their schedule because of th
of defense is correct we are doing quarterbacking. if they would tell us more we would quit our monday morning quarterbacking. he didn't have the awareness to commit forces, look he had the situational awareness that the embassy was being attacked -- the consulate was being attacked in benghazi and should have had aircraft over there as soon as possible. john mccain is correct, they didn't have an alert status. we still could have gotten airplanes were armed or not over the consulate annex within probably a couple hours. we should have done that. we didn't even try. we didn't do anything. that is the very disturbing thing. we should have had alert aircraft. first we should have had a global hawk over benghazi and tripoli on 9/11 the anniversary. they announced the day before that we should take radical islamists should take advantage and defeat the americans because they killed binlibbi in afghanistan. we should have had intelligence surveillance and assets right over libya. >> jamie: you are saying we should have begun the operation to protect everyone even before 9/11. we had enough
-ups refused to provide military backup to those under attack in benghazi. defense secretarily onpanetta saying there wasn't enough information on the ground. >> joining us, former u.s. embassador to the united nations, john bolton. good morning. >> good morning. >> we have this -- the reporting by jennifer griffin there were three calls on the ground in benghazi for help. she broke the story. the order came back, stand down. don't go. what's your reaction? >> and request for outside assistance denied. they put out a statement friday we never said no to requests for help. the white house is trying to portray the president as saying do whatever it takes. but in the defense department there's more contradiction, panetta says the african command agreed no reinforcement should be sent to benghazi. that's not what general ham is reported to have said to the congressman. i think the picture we have of the administration is a lot of fingers pointing different directions and no clear pictures as to what actually happened. i think the only place you can trace this to is the white house. in any administr
of you watch your favorite football team play prevent defense and watch the lead dissipate. it happens every time. >> i think he is still the favored to win the race, but we have a candidate, a -- and oil and gas by who will put $25 million in the race. i am told another $5 million or so coming down the stretch in addition to whatever he can raise. that is a big number in pennsylvania, and that can move numbers, and one thing that senator casey has not done purdum gilley well is define himself. and ed has made that comment -- has not done very well is define himself. and ed has made that comment. that is not a great place to be. if mitt romney can do the rope a dpoe and slide in, then there is really no one in the city of philadelphia that is going to energize turn out in the city. this could be a real sleeper on election night. >> let's move beyond pennsylvania. what would you think the romney campaign means to do? we are two weeks out. he may have a little momentum, but he's clearly struggling in a couple of key swing states. how does he conclude the sale? >> i'm not too sure there i
on it. this is what they're saying. they're saying they're putting the obama campaign on defense. quote, mitt romney is up or tied with obama in every key battleground state forcing obama on defense in states he won by double digits in 2008 like wisconsin, iowa, michigan, minnesota, and pennsylvania. with the campaigns even on the ground and in early vote, gop enthusiasm is going to carry romney to victory. they're saying energy is on their side and look where obama is campaigning. the reality here is just because the obama campaign is playing defense that still doesn't mean they're going to lose those states. you can play defense and still win. so this is what the romney campaign is talking about today. >> what are both campaigns saying about their chances in ohio during these final few days? >> wolf, you know, our poll showed obama leading romney by three points here, i interviewed govern nor both of them were dismissing public polling saying our models show that the turnout is going to favor republicans. republicans are more enthusiastic. but i went out this morning with some afl-cio
the annex. former assistant secretary of defense and author of the book "into the fire" joins us. good evening, bing. >> good evening, greta. >> greta: i know you have been critical of how the government handled this. tell me. >> i think today a good a lot worse. the situation is very serious and most of the press doesn't want to touch it because many of them are cheerleaders for president obama. beyond that you valu have to lt what is going on and that is that president obama today said that he gave an order to everyone while the attack was going on to do everything they could to secure the personnel. that is really big because that means that those who were turning down ty woods when was asking for the help were going against the orders of the president of the united states. and a chairman of the joint chiefs of staff doesn't take an order from the president when says do everything and not put that in writing and send it out to the chain of command. so if that actually happened the way president obama today said it happened there is a paper trail. and i think people reasonably enough
questions are. was he directed by the president or the secretary of defense? he said, no. >> shannon: as you know, there are very few people above a four-star general, that narrows the field of who has the answers. congressman, thank you for your time. >> thanks, shannon. >> shannon: hurricane sandy is expected to make landfall on tuesday morning, around the delaware coast with storm urges up to 8 feet. we are feeling it up and down the east coast. states of emergency have been declared from north carolina through new england. and this rare hybrid storm that follows sandy may wreak even more havoc. we have more live team coverage. we go to the fox extreme weather center and rick. >> reporter: it's all one storm, becoming one big storm. a storm like we have never seen. if you live anywhere from illinois to mississippi, to the east, you are going to feel the effects of this storm. very big already. you can see the cloud cover from canada to south carolina, rain has been consistent in the outer banks and we are seeing rain in parts of new jersey and much of the state of pennsylvania. this is th
of homeland defense and security. the head of fema, there's been a lot of conference calls every single day on emergency response. ray lahood has been coordinating the response on the transportation system, but fema is coordinating the overall response. i'm sure that there will be requests for infrastructure, for people. it is a disaster beyond belief. and there has to be a commission to look at ways we can try and prevent this in the future. one of the problems in new york is a lot of the infrastructure was in the basement of buildings. for example the hospitals, they had their m.r.i.'s, these huge electrical systems. and othercies testimonies in the basement. it's all destroyed with the saltwater. i was touring n.y.u. medical yesterday, and the smell, the stench just from a few days was almost unbelievable. the combination of this type of electric communication systems rotting. everywhere you see on the lower east side, the pumps are working, trying to push water out. some of our larger institutions do have generators, but fema and the national guard and really the federal government are
's right harris. romney campaign believes that obama cam pawn is on defense. and so we see the president trying to really his best got a new adout hitting romney and claims she is flip flopping and then something we haven't heard the president do. talking about the broader tax cut that governor romney talked about and disputing the figures. they talked about that before. this time he zero in on taxes in massachusetts. and a bither joke thrown it. >> there were higher fees for gas. there were higher gas for milk and higher fees for blund people who neepeded to get a certificate that they were blind . he raised feas for a birth certificate which would have been expensive for me. and the romney camp is pushing back and said the feas were raised to balance the state budget and as governor he cut other taxes. and the romney camp is angry about the birther things and rolling stone mag wreen where the president used profanity to describe romney. this is it a snaul campaign and instead of the president doing uplifting ret ruck. respiratory new hampshire is a small state but beautiful. and the pr
romney's allies went on television in california, they wouldn't be inclined to play defense there. they feel a little bit of vulnerability in those states. and again, if you take the non-battlegrounds, expand the map a little bit to include pennsylvania, minnesota, and maybe michigan, it's a much different calculation. >> karl rove is going to be putting up ads in pennsylvania now, the president is putting up ads in pennsylvania now. >> yep. >> suddenly the keystone state is the final week out up for grabs. why? not up for grabs yet, the polls show it close. but both sides realize that it's not safe anymore. >> what's the big deal to last week, we have enough money to go there. it's not the money on television, that's not nothing, it's the candidate's time, joe biden going to scranton. i suspect if things keep on the current trajectory, the president might have to go to pennsylvania, bill clinton might have to be there repeatedly. every day they're spending in pennsylvania is a day they're not spending in ohio. the republicans believe, not just rove's group, but some of the others
, the department of defense was ready to fly in cargo planes that could be loaded with trucks and equipment to help local power companies get up and running faster. but recovery will be a long, hard road for many communities. there's a lot of work ahead. if you've been directly impacted by this storm and need temporary assistance getting back on your feet, you can call 1-800-621-fema, or apply at disasterassistance.gov. if you know folks who are still without power, please spread the word and let them know. and if you don't live in an affected area and want to help, supporting the red cross is the best and fastest way. this week, we have been humbled by nature's destructive power. but we've been inspired as well. for when the storm was darkest, the heroism of our fellow citizens shone brightest. the nurses and doctors at nyu medical center who evacuated fragile newborns, carrying some down several flights of stairs. the firefighters in queens who battled an inferno from flooded streets, and rescued people from an apartment building by boat. the coast guard crews from north carolina who saved a sink
. that was not at the state level that was at the federal level. and that was primarily due to an increase in defense spending. i think that that was the biggest surprise and a pleasant surprise. >> brown: but on the other hand this is still very slow growth, right? >> yes, that's true. when youompare it to the, rt of theind of growth rate you should see for the economy at this stage of a recovery, it should be closer to 3%. we're the 2%. >> it looks as though a new area of weakness was in exports. what's going on there? >> yeah, there was clearly a slowdown, a negative number on expert-- exports. that is primarily due to the fact that we're doing less business with china. the economy of china has slowed. the economy of europe has slowed. and that showed up in the numbers. >> brown: i'm not going to me yointo a polical ansys but fro where youit does it look like there's something here for both candidates? >> yeah, i think there is something there for both sides. i think on the one side president obama can certainly point to the fact that the economy did better in the third quarter than it did in the second qu
of defense we'll reimburse you for that. >> cenk: michael, as you i hear you say that, that has to be the most obvious thing in the world. i can't imagine any of administration disagreeing except it turns out you guys did under the bush administration. does that go to show that nobody was in charge? there was wide disarray here. how can you have rumsfeld saying no or even having a debate for six hours on whether to send helicopters during hurricane katrina? isn't that very damming of how george bush ran that white house? >> it is damming as i have said, since the day i left. actually, since before then. if you went back and you found there is a march 2003 memo from me to tom ridge. gave the same memo later to michael chertoff that said if you keep fema this position and you keep this command structure that currently exists, fema will fall. it is exactly what we did. you now have this huge bureaucracy that fema is a part of. now, that said, congress has tried to correct it. i think congress learned from katrina t
trillion more in defense spending. he says he will close unspecified -- end unspecified tax deductions, which he refuses to spell out because they're politically poisonous. this is the basic recipe of trickle-down economics in the reagan and bush years, both of which resulted in exploding defici deficits. what am i missing here? >> i have the benefit of meeting one on one with mitt romney and paul ryan and probing what are their thoughts with regard to taxes and defense. you're talking about the things being thrown out, but when you look at a 20% rate reduction and when you look at what rate are now, that will take the top rate to 28%. we lose 1.1 trillion a year in revenue through the deductions and exemptions and credits and exclusions. over ten years that's probably 15 trillion, when you count inflation. so all you have to do is is eliminate about a third to 40% of the deductions, exemptions and credits and exclusions, and you can be revenue neutral. with regard to defense, we're spending 4.6% of gdp on defense. he's committed to spend 4. 4 is less hanthan 4.6. my personal view is w
] let's repeal the patriot act. [cheers and applause] i would have never signed the national defense authorization act allowing for you and i as u.s. citizens to be arrested and detained without being charged. that's the reason we fought wars in this country. [cheers and applause] i promise to submit a balanced budget to congress in the year 2013. that is a 1.4 trillion reduction in federal spending. if we don't do this now, we are going to find ourselves in a monetary collapse and a monetary collapse very simply is when the dollars we have in our pockets don't buy a thing because of the acome anying inflation -- because of the accompanying inflation that goes along with every dollar we spend. thathe only candidate wants to eliminate income tax, eliminate corporate tax, abolish the i.r.s. and replace all of that with one federal consumption tax, the fair tax. i think it is the answer to our exports, it is the answer to american jobs.
